Once a year, Portside Wharf gives Brisbanites an extra-cheesy reason to stop by. That'd be Cheese Week — which has evolved from a one-day pop-up to eight whole days of cheese specials, all by the Hamilton waterside.
Whichever eatery or retailer you stop by, you'll find cheese on the menu — and in different ways, too. Think cheese platters, three-cheese pastas, four-cheese pizzas, mozzarella sticks, cheese-slathered nachos, lamb cutlets with roquefort blue souffle, cheese naan and cheesecake. There's even cashew cheese as well.
The whole precinct is getting into the cheesy spirit from Friday, March 13–Friday, March 20, including Belvedere Bar and Grill, Byblos Bar, Gusto da Gianni, Hello Harry and even Dendy Cinemas.
Folks keen to embrace the classic pairing that is cheese and wine can do so at a one-night tasting event at Mr and Mrs Jones, too, with tickets costing $25. And if you think that cheese goes better with beer, Sense of Taste is hosting an evening just for that as well — plus meat — with tickets costing $50.
